POEM| I Know About Suffering

I know about suffering
because I’ve been there

It comes with a lot of tears
and sleepless nights

It brings trouble in its wake

and danger in its corner

It makes you reflect on the past
with no regard for the present

It turns you to someone you don’t know
or wish you never met

It makes you feel uninterested
and incapable of living

I know about suffering
and I also know that it ends
